  1. Q: If a dolphin dies in a a small pool, not bigger than 5 x 5 meters, does the water become impure? A: No, the water will not become impure. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. ( ويجوز ) رفع الحدث ( بما ذكر وإن مات فيه ) أي الماء ولو قليلا ( غير دموي كزنبور ) وعقرب وبق أي بعوض وقيل بق الخشب وفي المجتبى الأصح في علق مص الدم أنه يفسد ومنه يعلم حكم بق وقراد وعلق وفي الوهبانية دود القز وماؤه وبزره وخرؤه طاهر كدودة متولدة من نجاسة ( ومائي مولد ) ولو كلب الماء وخنزيره ( كسمك وسرطان ) وضفدع إلا بريا له دم سائل وهو ما لا سترة له بين أصابعه فيفسد في الأصح كحية برية إن لها دم وإلا لا ( وكذ
  2. Q: I would like to know is the nikaah valid if the couples are not willing by heart? Especially the bride? If they just accept the nikaah because of family pressure. A: If consent is given by the girl for the nikaah to be performed, then the nikaah will be valid. However it is not at all correct for the family to force the girl to marry someone whom she is unhappy to marry. Generally, in forced marriages there is always the fear that the nikaah would not last on account of the spouses not being compatible. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. قال الشامي : قوله ( ليتحقق رضاهما ) أي
  3. From the book Khulaasatul Kalaam by Shaykh Jaarullah 1. Fast Ramadhan with belief and truly seeking the reward of Allah the Most High so that He may forgive you your past sins. 2. Beware of breaking your fast during the days of Ramadhan without a valid Islamic excuse, for it is from the greatest of sins. 3. Pray Salat ut-Taraweeh and the night prayer during the nights of Ramadhan – especially on Layatul-Qadr – based on belief and truly seeking the reward of Allah, so that Allah may forgive you your past sins. 4. Make sure that your food, your drink and your clothing are from halal means
  4. 1. Ask Allah to enable you to reach Ramadan and to get the most out of it as the Salaf (early generation of pious people) used to do. 2. Intend to fast every day with Iman and pure intention seeking the reward from Allah alone. The Prophet peace be upon him said, “Whoever fasts in Ramadan with Iman and seeking reward (from Allah) his past sins will be forgiven”. (Bukhari) 3. Read the whole Qur’an at least once as the Prophet peace be upon him did. 4. Have Suhoor as the Prophet peace be upon him said, “Have Suhoor because it is blessed”. 5. Make Du’a during the fast because the Prophet p
  5. Have you ever wondered why it is difficult to concentrate in your prayer? Or why your faith throughout the year is not on a high like it is during Ramadan or through Hajj? Maybe it is because we usually jump straight from a phone conversation into Takbir or because we just go with the flow in Ramadan and are influenced by the environment around us and not our own ‘real’ feelings. A lot of us usually live life and have our faith dependent on an upcoming major event i.e. “I’m going to start reading a page of Quran a day as soon as Ramadan starts; I’m going to start praying Qiyam every night
  6. 12 Tips for the Convert Muslim By a Muslim Convert in America 1. Practice Islam as much as you can “He who loves my Sunnah has loved me, and he who loves me will be with me in Paradise.” -The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Tirmidhi) As a new Muslim, you will have trouble keeping up with prayers every day, fasting during Ramadan, and the many other practices in this religion. The struggle that we face, with such a radical change in lifestyle, is difficult and will take some time. Awkward moments are bound to happen, don’t fret. You are not expected to wake up at 4am every morning to pray tah
  7. Posted on April 6, 2012 by Mufti Faraz al-Mahmudi 0 Knowing how to study is just as important as studying if not more important. A student spends years studying, however if his methodology is inaccurate and imprecise, then he will fail in gaining maximum benefit. The acquisition of knowledge requires three dimensions: 1) Abstinence from sin. 2) Constant, persistent and unceasing effort. 3) Retaining and preserving what was studied. 1) Abstinence from sin As opposed to all sciences, the Islamic sciences are fused with spirituality and Allah consciousness. The s
  8. Moulana Muhammad A April 28, 2015Reference Question I understand that photography is a major sin, however I have heard some say that after a person dies if we send his pictures around, this causes inconvenience to the deceased (marhum). Is this substantiated from any Hadith? Answer In essence, your question is about whether the deceased is inconvenienced by the sins of those who survive him/her. There are several Hadiths that explain that our deed are shown to the deceased from time to time, and they take effect from what we are doing; if its good that the living are involved
  9. Being called while performing Salaah Q: If a person is performing Zuhr Salaah at home and a family member calls him from another room, what is the best way to notify the family member that he is in Salaah? Is it ok for him to recite his qira'ah loudly for 1-2 seconds to show that he is praying (even if it is Zuhr Salaah), or should he say "subhaanallah" loudly or is there any better way? A: If there is no emergency, then he should not break his Salaah. However, he may recite subhaanallah audibly to inform them that he is in Salaah. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. فروع سم
  10. God guides who He wills. Nate Leonard Richards is a professional fighter. He wrote in to Brotherhood In Islam: “I am the only Muslim in my town and I face persecution for my beliefs every day but I know Allah guides me. I am a professional fighter. I always praise Allah after my fights win or lose no matter what the crowd thinks. I love this page. All the content is great for me to read. I go on first thing every day.” He took his Shahadah (testimony of faith) a year ago and since then, stopped getting tattoos. “I do not miss prayer.” When asked what brought him to Islam he said, “I was seei
  11. Q: If a person is performing Sunnats or Nawaafil Salaah and is finishing the sajdah of the third rakaat as the iqaamat goes, should he cut the salaah short and make it three rakaats and finish the two later or should he complete the four rakaats and miss the Takbeer-e-ula? A: He should complete the four rakaats with shortening his qiraat and thereafter join the jamaat. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. ( والشارع في نفل لا يقطع مطلقا ) ويتمه ركعتين ( وكذا سنة الظهر و ) سنة ( الجمعة إذا أقيمت أو خطب الإمام ) يتمها أربعا ( على ) القول ( الراجح ) لأنها صلاة واحدة وليس القطع ل
  12. never thought of that . Jazakillah khair for sharing the thought . Not sure if can do that but it's a new idea for me .
  13. Procedure for asking the husband for a divorce Q: Kindly explain the rules of a woman asking for a divorce. A: One should adopt all halaal means and ways in trying to resolve the marital disputes and misunderstandings. If one is able to speak to one's husband directly and thereby reach some resolution in amicably settling the marital problems, then one should do so. If this is not possible, then one should refer the matter to a third person or a third party and ask them to assist in bringing about a reconciliation. If reconciling is not possible and the wife is sure that she cannot mana
  14. Q: A family moves into an apartment, they use a well known Qibla finding app to locate the Qibla direction and pray. Months later a neighbour points out that the direction is wrong and they must face the other direction. The difference is about 90 degrees apart. What happens to those Salaah that were prayed in the incorrect direction, are they valid or do they need to be repeated? A: If it can be confirmed that the direction was definitely wrong through some reliable means and the direction was 90 degrees away from the qiblah, then the namaaz must be repeated. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعا
  15. Celebrating a wedding anniversary Q: Is celebrating a wedding anniversary jaaiz in Islam? A: One should refrain from this. Celebrating a wedding anniversary is a custom of the kuffaar. As Muslims, we are commanded to refrain from emulating the kuffaar as well as adopting their ways. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم (the one who emulates a people will be counted from amongst them (in the sight of Allah Ta’ala)). عن ابن عمر قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم. (سنن أبي داود رقم 4033)​ من تشبه بقوم أي من شبه نفسه بالكفار مثلا في اللباس
  16. Contemplating suicide Q: I am facing many difficulties and problems in life. People do not treat me properly and I am becoming despondent. I wish to commit suicide. Please advise me what I should do in this situation. A: Committing suicide is haraam in Islam. It will not save one from the difficulty and hardship one is experiencing, instead it will only increase one's agony and pain. The one who gives up hope in life and takes his life by committing suicide is in actual fact jumping from the frying pan into the fire. He is trying to save himself from the trivial worldly hardships t
  17. Q: How does fasting work when travelling by plane. If I have sehri in one place, do I break my fast at my destination according to their maghrib or according to where I left from? A: One will break one's fast according to the time of iftaar at one's destination. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. أُحِلَّ لَكُمْ لَيْلَةَ الصِّيَامِ الرَّفَثُ إِلَىٰ نِسَائِكُمْ هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَّكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لِبَاسٌ لَّهُنَّ عَلِمَ اللَّـهُ أَنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ تَخْتَانُونَ أَنفُسَكُمْ فَتَابَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَعَفَا عَنكُمْ فَالْآنَ بَاشِرُوهُنَّ وَابْتَغُوا مَا كَتَبَ اللَّـهُ لَكُمْ وَكُلُوا وَاشْرَ
  18. nice thread . Jazakillah khair for sharing sis.
  19. Q: Who will be a representative of a revert Muslim women. All her family, parents, etc are non Muslim. A: If she does not have a Muslim guardian then some senior from the community may represent her with her consent. However, the representation will not make the senior a mahram to her. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. عن ابن عباس أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خطب ميمونة بنت الحارث فجعلت أمرها إلى العباس فزوجها النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم (مسند أحمد #2441) فيستفاد من مجموعها أنه صلى الله عليه وسلم بعث أبا رافع ورجلا من الأنصار – وهو أوس بن خولى كما في "طبقات ابن سعد" – ليخطبا له مي
  20. Reciting Dua-Qunoot loudly Q: If one recites dua-e-qunoot loudly, will the salaah be valid? A: The dua-e-qunoot should be recited softly. However if it was recited loudly, the Salaah will be valid. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. (وقنت فيه) ويسن الدعاء المشهور ... (مخافتا على الأصح مطلقا) ولو إماما، لحديث خير الدعاء الخفي. قال الشامي: (قوله على الأصح) كذا في المحيط. وفي الهداية أنه المختار، ومقابله ما في الذخيرة واستحسنوا الجهر في بلاد العجم للإمام ليتعلموا، وفصل بعضهم بين أن يعلمه القوم فالأفضل للإمام الإخفاء وإلا فالجهر. اهـ. قلت: هذا التفصيل لا يخرج عما قبله. وفي المن
  21. Reciting more than one Surah in a single rakaat of a Fardh or Nafl Salaah Q: Is it permissible to recite two or more Surahs consecutively in a single rakaat of a Fardh or Nafl Salaah? A: One should avoid reciting more than one Surah in a single rakaat of a Fardh Salaah. However one may recite more than one Surah in a single rakaat of Nafl Salaah if one wishes. And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best. قال الشامي : قوله ( ويكره الفصل بسورة قصيرة ) أما بسورة طويلة بحيث يلزم منه إطالة الركعة الثانية إطالة كثيرة فلا يكره شرح المنية كما إذا كانت سورتان قصيرتان وهذا لو في ركعتين أما في رك
